Well, I decided that as I was in no state to hack PWM and I wanted to try something that was light, stable but current so I decided I'd try the venerable TWM.

Wow. Once you get past the horrible green OOTB thing and start reading probably the best man page ever.. It turns out to be very capable, dare I say powerful and actually quite a joy to use.

The only issue I encountered was when trying it on Buster (this was meant to be in the other thread!) Unfortunately I got a permissions error and could only start it as root! Logged out shutdown and restarted or at least tried to because I'd got a non bootable system. I tried the usual rescue mode and grub-rescue but no go so I repeat via a live CD, still no go so after a little rtfm it seems the disk is likely dying. I try fsck but no luck with that either. Anyway I formatted the drive and installed exe-gnu and the damn thing worked. Shall wait and see if the drive is going to go or if buster is trying to live up to it's name :mrgreen:

The lower window is some kind of Japanese version of a music player? On the official website https://deadbeef.sourceforge.io I saw only a white window of the player. Maybe this https://sourceforge.net/projects/deadbeef/files/travis/linux/1.8.3/deadbeef-static_1.8.3-1_amd64.deb/downloadcs

And how did he manage to achieve one color scheme of all the windows?

Music player is DeaDBeeF (Author is Alexey Yakovenko, idk, I don't believe the player is a Japanese made :)
More or less the link you pulled out. I only use daily/nightly static-build from here
- The static-build is not installable, simply download/extract and run it.

Regarding color scheme, The background color is covered by player itself. From menu 1) Edit > Preferences > Appearance > Playlist
When you come to Playlist, on the right there is "Background" settings like
* Events:
* Odd:
* Selected:
* Cursors:
Those four settings are clickable from where you choose (color names, ie: #111121). I have chosen this number for all four parts.

Other colors features from listview.
%artist% - %title% - %duration%

There is a header with names Artist/Title/Duration etc columns... right click to the names then go to "Edit column" at the bottom of the Column dialog there is a "Text color"
Click the color settings and change it to your chosen number associated with activation of checkbox.
Note: after i chose my prefered colors, i always disable the header/menu to make the player more simple. You can turn on/off too many other features from preferences or plain config text.

Other colors settings:
Statusbar color background & text color is covered by GTK Theme.
Titlebar color background & text color is covered by Window Manager (WM).

Personally i'm using using a static background color for almost everything.
